I don’t think there are many things more terrifying than a school shooting. THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS immerses the reader into the minute-by-minute terror from the viewpoint of four students over the span of 54 minutes. What added to the terror was the fact that it was all over before the police could even mobilize.

I didn’t walk away with any insights as to how a kid could shoot other kids. Only that sometimes things happen that causes a fracture in someone that isn’t seen until it’s too late.

Superbly told, this tale will haunt you. I couldn’t put it down even though there were times I just wanted it to stop. I have often referred to a book as a “must read” but THIS IS WHERE IT ENDS is more of a read if you dare.
